jolly

 

A person who is jolly is happy and laughs a lot. The word "jolly" is, perhaps, more common in British English than in American English, but there are certain situations and characters for whom this word is used:

Santa Santa Claus

  • Santa Claus is jolly. He's always in a good mood and he laughs a lot.
  • Jolly people are fun to be around. They like to sing and have a good time.
  • The song "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow" is sung when honoring a person's achievement.
  • The jolly Green Giant is a very large man who helps sell vegetables. He lives in Le Sueur, Minnesota.
